Penn National Gaming Holds Talks to Buy Barstool SportsReading Time: < 1 minute


Penn National Gaming, the owner of Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, has held talks to buy Barstool Sports.

Barstool founder Dave Portnoy said: “We continue to speak or have spoken with everybody from DraftKings to FanDuel to Stars to PointsBet to Penn to Willam Hill to MGM to Rush Street, etc. I think that if we aligned ourselves with one company with a shared vision, that company would have an extraordinary advantage in the race to becoming the leading gambling company in the United States.”

Penn National operates 41 sites across the country, with many offering horse racing, along with bets on both live races and telecasts. The acquisition of Barstool would likely come with applying the site’s branding to some of its betting operations.
